As a group (with Robyn and Richard), come up with the four constitutions for your utopia:

e.g. All citizens can... All citizens will... All citizens have the right to explore the narrative.

Guiding principal of "help all, harm none".

  1. All citizens have the freedom to find their way to who they are

  2. All citizens have no limitations to morphing their physical being

  3. All citizens have the right to manifest in reality the output of their imagination

  4. All citizens have the right to consider and empathise with others
